The HR Series Softening cartridge is an industrial
cartridge designed for various softening and/or selective divalent ion
removal. It contains a highly converted virgin cation exchanger designed
to operate under a variety of feed conditions. It can be used for heavy
metal removal from waste streams or for precious metal recovery from
certain plating baths or rinse streams.

Primo TDS Test meter to test your water and use the information to
construct your hard water solution. We also highly recommend the
Magnetizer Hard Water Conditioner magnets to control the damage hard
water can cause to your pipes and water appliances.
Each functions as a softener for the removal of scale causing ions and
iron from feed streams up to 300 000 TDS background salt levels. In
addition, each of the HR Series filters utilizes different chemistry and
operates under different conditions.

The HR-1 Softening cartridge
is a regenerable softening cartridge constructed totally of FDA grade
materials and media. It contains a highly converted sodium form strong acid
fine mesh cation exchanger and has a demonstrated capacity of 15000 ppm for
hardness when run on 500 TDS water containing 250 ppm hardness to a 1 grain
hardness break. Flow rates up to 1 gpm can be run with essentially no
hardness leakage. However, higher capacity will be realized at flow rates of
The HR-1 can be used for hardness and iron removal prior to distillers,
steamers, humidifiers, ice and beverage makers, or as a pretreatment for
R/O's. Generally speaking this filter is not recommended for use as a
pre-filter for a alkaline water ionizer
unless you have a really bad case of hard water that can do immediate damage
to your ionizer. Please call us for free
consultation. The HR-1 can also be used for heavy metal removal such as lead,
copper, trivalent chrome, etc. from rinses as low as pH 3. A fresh HR-1
cartridge will exchange virtually all cations (except sodium) in feed
streams up to about 5000 ppm TDS.
